Whatever You Are Going Through- Walk Through It By Faith and Not By Sight!!
-We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
(2 Corinthians 4:8-9)
It’s been said that as We live this life, We will find that We are either going through something, just coming out of something, or about to go through something. For those of You going through something, I would like to Encourage You to Walk through it by Faith and Not By Sight.
Take a Read through 2 Corinthians Chapter 4: Paul tells Us that When we go through life’s tribulations; deterioration of the family, divorce and bitter separations, mental and emotional breakdown, financial woes, physical illness and pain, etc., If we will walk through it trusting in and relying on God, then Our suffering is but a temporary, momentary, affliction…and this too, shall pass!!
No- Our troubles aren’t going to cease when we want them to; it’s not our own timing that’s important, but it’s God’s timing.
-But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. (Psalms 31:14-15)
Paul says that this current suffering that we are experiencing, in the natural will produce great gains for Us spiritually and eternally. So although we are experiencing suffering in this fleshly tent, and these bodies that we live in are dying and deteriorating daily, Paul reminds Us that the inner man- the Spirit Man- is being refreshed and renewed daily!!
Paul encourages Us, as he reminds us that although there is trouble all around Us…As we we walk through with God, He will give Us peace…so we’re not stressed-out. When we are confused and perplexed, He gives us His grace (his kindness, mercy and favor)…so we’re not in despair and left without hope. When we’re persecuted and it seems we’re fighting battles on every hand, Praise God we’re not forsaken or defeated because He causes Us to triumph over Our enemies. Even when we are weak in the knees with fear and we fall down…it’s the Truth of God’s written Word the lifts Us up in Spirit…and it is that Spirit…that Holy Spirit that lives inside of Us…Who seals Us with the Guarantee of an Eternal Life with Jesus and keeps Us alive spiritually…so Our enemy can never destroy Us!!
